Lars Saabye Christensen (1953) is a Norwegian writer, whose books have been translated into over thirty languages. He made his debut as a poet in 1976, but he has also published in many other genres; short stories, novels, children´s books, plays and screenplays. Saabye Christensen is probably best known for his novels, such as Beatles – that has reached something of a cult status in Norway – and the great epic novel Halvbroren (The Half Brother), which was awarded the Nordic Council Literature Prize in 2002. Halvbroren has been adapted into a TV series that was broadcasted in all the Nordic countries. For his latest novel, Magnet (2015), Saabye Christensen received the Brage Prize, a prize that he also received for Halvbroren.
Since the autumn of 2015, the Nordic House has organized monthly Meet the Author evenings with exciting and relevant Nordic writers. Our goal is to present a wide variety of interesting writers whom we invite to talk about their books and authorship.
The writers are interviewed in one of the Scandinavian languages by a well-grounded and skilfull moderator and they answer questions from eager and well-read readers and literature lovers in the audience.
During the break, refreshments are available from AALTO Bistro, the restaurant at the Nordic House, and many visitors choose to have dinner at the restaurant prior to the event.
